AND it was pretty quick to make. After so much handing sewing for my somewhat insane quilt project, I am going sew this entire dress by machine.

A good metal invisible zipper foot seems expensive, but they are SO much better than the cheap blue plastic kind. Do they even still sell the blue plastic kind?
Wished I would have know that BEFORE I put in the zipper. Oh well.
To make a 1/4" edge I cut the bias 1 1/4" wide. A wrap around edge like that usually needs four times the finished width, but since I'm making this dress all with machine sewing, I want to "stitch in the ditch" and a little extra is needed to do that.
